Summer season means bikini season! Just like you wouldn't wear old clothes to a new school year, you shouldn't wear your winter-dry skin to the beach! Exfoliating your skin will give your body a fresh and more polished look and feel. These oils are great for your skin because the almond oil is rich in Vitamin E which is great for helping keep away wrinkles and grapeseed oil is great for helping your skin retain its moisture. This is especially important because grapeseed oil is unlike alcohol based moisturizers that evaporate after a few hours. Ingredients:
1/2 cup of almond oil 1/2 cup of grapeseed oil 2 cups granulated sugar (regular white sugar) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional) Directions: Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until you reach a thick pasty consistency with sugar granules. Massage the scrub all over your body in circular motions, making sure to go easy on the more sensitive parts like your abdomen and inner arm. You can scrub your knees and elbows more vigorously.
Rinse off and pat dry. If you feel too greasy, you can use a mild body wash to remove some of the excess oil.
